  1. Used the “Dusk” code and got my 3 boxes! I’m very happy with the products and plan on staying subscribed. I hope they don’t start sending me water and hair ties though or I’ll have to reconsider. My hair is too short to pull back so…. I loved the pug lipstick, perfect with my fair complexion!

    • Did you receive all three boxes on the same day?

      • Yea all 3 boxes in one big box!

        • Yaaaay!! Thanks for the response!

  2. Well their sterling service strikes again. Though I’ve checked my account almost daily, just checked to see my box shipped 8/11 and due today. My last of 3 boxes. Will report whether I got any spoilers … they’re not so good on that.

  4. My 3 boxes arrived today! I am SUPER EXCITED! I was so worried that I was going to get the “other version” of the July box that wasn’t half as nice as some subscribers had received, but I was very happy to see that I got the “good July box” with the melted chihuahua & the sparkly oil. Also the Tony awards box was one of them. Very happy with all 3 boxes! Just might stay subscribed! <3

  5. My box arrived today. (totally out of the blue!) It had the hair thingys (3 in the pak) the mascara remover, the lipstick, hair oil, after sun lotion, and a body refining polish.
    **Also it said next months sneak peek: As September quickly approaches the world turns to the fashion and beauty scene. Glossybox has collaborated with an extremely talented illustrator to bring you a keepsake specifically-designed box complete with products for you to set the stage, walk the runway, or simply vogue.

    • Ooooh, color me intrigued! Thanks for the breakdown of the box, glad you got the lipstick.

      Which color did you receive? Looks like two different shades are up on their site.

      • I’m not sure what the name of it is. Its the one with the pug and it just says Trifle lip parfait at the bottom. I can tell you that it is a neutral shade with a definite orange tone to it. Its hard to describe what it would look like on someone else. Even though I am fair, my lips are almost a berry color naturally so most neutral tones don’t show up very well on me. It is not quite as deep as it looks in the picture. But it is very buttery!

        • I got an “Exotic Fruits” color of the Trifle. It feels nice, but it makes my lips the same color as my skin. Maybe I can use it with something I already have that’s too dark.

          • Yeah I had to look mine up. Its guilty pug. lol Mine almost gives off a frosted orange color. I am wondering though if I might like it for a fall color when I am not so tanned. And I definitely think its best over something. I went outside and looked at it when I put 2 coats on and it looked a bit streaky. So using 1 layer as a gloss or over something else I think would work the best.

  6. Looks like spoilers are up on their fb. Another can of water, those spiral plastic hair ties, 24k dry hairspray, another solid perfume and the mascara remover…makes 5 products….and they left out the lipstick (reason I signed up) in their image :/

    • Seriously? What is going on with them, putting out spoilers and then rescinding them?

      I’m also planning to keep an eye out in the future (after my sub is up) to see if they put out past boxes for sale and include both the Nuxe oil July box (meaning they could have sent more people the box rather than total crap) and the Sinful polish July boxes.

    • I just cancelled. Seriously, a can of water…hair ties…?! For a box that’s supposed to be mainly skincare and whatnot, what a joke!! Well, for any kind of box it’s a joke! I’m going with Beautyfix.

    • Aw, man – I had to take a look after you posted this, Rebecca. Any way that could be for a different box and not September? LOL

    • Btw, I bought 3-packs of invisibobble hair pulls a few months ago on sale at Nordstrom’s (always free shipping) for about $3.50 apiece. I had high hopes because I had heard such great things about them. They’re OK at first, but they stretch out pretty quickly. I far prefer the grippy Goody and Scunci ones that sometimes pop up in Target boxes.

      Also, I suspect that the lipstick is a spoiler for new subscribers only. Because apparently they give all the good stuff to new subscribers – which is fine in and of itself – and giving leftover garbage to existing subscribers.

      • I don’t understand the ‘invisibobble’….what sets it apart from any other pony holder? Can anyone explain the difference?

        • They’re supposed to hold better than regular ponytail holders and not leave the “ridge” in your hair. I still get a ridge if my hair is wet when I pull it back, although it’s not as bad as with a regular ponytail holder. If my hair is dry when I pull it back, then pretty much no ridge.

          I will agree that they hold well but, IMHO, no better than the grippy Goody or Scunci ones, even during runs or Spinning. However they do stretch out over time and don’t regain their shape after maybe 6 or 7 uses. I have fine hair but a lot of it, though not a ridiculous amount, so I don’t think my hair is overly demanding of these hair pulls. The one I have that’s all stretched out, I have to wrap it 4 or 5 times around my ponytail to get a tight hold, whereas a new one is 3. This means that it takes up a lot of horizontal space on my ponytail and looks funny. After the first one stretched out, I started grabbing the Goody and Scunci ones again ?

          • Thanks for that explanation – I am like you, very fine hair but a buttload of a it, lol. So, maybe these will work OK for me.

            I tend to use the grippy Goody bands and love them. But, I’ll give these a shot. 🙂

  7. I could put up with Glossy’s crappy variations, and their inclusions of sinful colors nail polish, IF they even tried to ship our boxes out within a decent time frame.

  8. Someone’s probably asked this before but – I signed up for the 2 free boxes with the code and it doesn’t say anything about them on the invoice. Will I be getting them?

    • I had the same thing happen when I ordered with the code back in July – no mention of it, but all 3 boxes came to my door today. I was a bit worried too, but all worked out even without the code showing up on the invoice.

      • Thanks for clearing that up Marie ?

    • I did the same thing this month. I used “dusk” coupon code and on my invoice it didn’t show the 2 other boxes . I emailed CS and got a reply with 24 hours saying that I do infact get 3 boxes , but they may not all come with the August box and they will be random past boxes.

      • I got all 3 of my boxes . One looked like a Christmas box and the other 2 were pink. I wasn’t wowed by them. They were just ok. I got a pug lipstick, i don’t wear lipstick. But it’s very cute . I hope my September box is better or i will try boxycharm. I love my play by sephora. I think the wal mart box was better for 5 bucks. Lol

  9. OK, they got me for the 2 free boxes, now what’s the quickest way to cancel for September?

    • I believe you would need to cancel by the 14th of the month prior to the next month’s box – 8/14 to cancel September. But, you might want to check out their FAQs to be certain.

      • I was suspicious like you, Helen, so I emailed after ordering and was told the other boxes are sent separately and they do not appear on the invoice. 3 boxes for $21 is a pretty decent deal!

        • OOPS- the above comment was supposed to respond to Helen Whaley’s above. However, I did want to note that KC is correct and you need to cancel for the following month by the 14th. I also saw this on the GB website and thought it might be helpful:
          “To cancel a current subscription –
          Simply log in to your GLOSSYBOX account
          On the left hand side of the dashboard, click on “Recurring Profiles and Orders”, then click on the text describing your applicable subscription plan (ie, “6-Month Plan”)
          Underneath the “Profile Schedule”, click on the gray box that states ‘Cancel Subscription’- That’s it!”

          • Will this work if you have a prepaid subscription? Will you get reimbursed what you have paid?

  10. The customer service lacks and they don’t set expectations very well. One of my bonus boxes was the Tony Awards box, which was the worst ever. Barely 21.00 of product in that box. Uggg, Tan Towels? Sinful Colors nail polish? Yuck. But for July, they sent me Nuxe oil, in shimmer, oh why couldn’t it have been the non-shimmer? Regardless, the only way I will spend 21.00 is when I get 2 extra boxes free. This might be the last time. It just costs too much for what it is and every other month sucks.

    • Oh my gosh! Another Starla at MSA? Hi! I was just scrolling along and was like, ummm, I don’t remember writing that. lol Crazy days.

  11. I seriously find it annoying that they are promoting giving new subscribers extra boxes when they struggled to get July boxes out to those who were already subscribers!
    I have paid for a year but apparently they don’t value those who commit to them. If they have extra box inventory then offer it to loyal subs or send a bonus box as a thank you for waiting until August for your July box.

    • I agree with you! Im on a yearly subscription with them, for which I paid the full amount for (no coupons etc) Guess the jokes on me…until I end the subscription.

    • Omg!!! I thought I was the only pissed off customer in July, I emailed them 3 times in 3 weeks not one response. Seriously pissed about delivery. I’am not crazy thank you?

      • The form on the site doesn’t always work. If you call them, they are usually pretty good.

        • Yeah I have always always had problems with their online form, but they have wonderful phone customer service reps! E-mailing will get you a response but it may take a couple days, so if you have the option to call it is really the best way to reach them. 🙂

  12. I love the packaging on the lipsticks! They are so cute. 🙂 When I saw them, I immediately thought of The Artist’s Studio lip tints that I just bought from Anthropologie. I actually thought they were from that line for a sec. I just hope this is a spoiler I’ll actually receive!!

  13. I like this spoiler, and I would be happy to receive one for the packaging alone – I mean, seriously, that’s a PUG on one of them!

    But based on my experiences with Grouchybox (oops, er, Glossybox) the last couple months, my box variation will probably consist of 3 Sinful Colors polishes, self tanner, and a dead spider.

    • Too funny! I love reading all of your comments 🙂
      (hope that doesn’t sound weird, but I noticed the past few days it seems when I read a funny comment or good comeback to somebody for whatever reason I like to look at the name, and lately it’s been yours! Ha!)

    • OMG! LOL! We get matching boxes! 🙂 But do you get the cracked blush/shadow powder that is all over everything and doesn’t wash off?

      • Twinsies! That Glossybox eyeshadow they sent got to me broke as heck. I seem to always get stuck with the worst variations too. These two spoilers look great but I’m not getting my hopes up about receiving either one knowing my luck, lol.

    • I agree. I never get any of the spoilers. Besides the sinful polish and 1/2 body tanners (wth? can’t I tan my whole body?) I usually get a mask, a can of hairspray and a solid perfume. When I’m really lucky I get a beach wave or a face spritz. ugh. Other than an eyebrow pencil I haven’t gotten any real makeup in 3 months. My reviews are titled – I can’t wait until November when my subscription ends. Its my new mantra!

      • This is my first glossybox and I hope they aren’t going to to be pulling that sinful nail polish and half tan on me , if it starts like that, it will be my last GB. I will try boxycharm. Ipsy was better than that. I wished I would have read ya’lls reviews before I got a Sub, but I got all boxymatized when I seen 3 for 1 price. SMH

        • Boxymatized! I’ve been boxymatized for some time now – I just didn’t know there was a name for it. lol

          • Lol i just made it up. But seriously since I’ve been on my subscription addiction , I am obsessed and i think i need subscription box anonymous. I’m going broke,but my skin and makeup has never looked better. #boxymatized

    • hahaha your comment was golden! for that very reason i have canceled my subs with Glossy. When i first received the Sinfulcolor Kylie Jenner CoLab in June, i was stunned. So during my survey for that box i stated that I didnt like it, as i am a half professional Nail Artist, I have my go to polishes and even tho i know SC is not that bad but i would surely not use it on clients or myself, maybe on my 5 yo nieces tippy toes but thats that. what do i get in my July box??? SC topcoat…uhm ??? anywho, August will be my last Glossybox as i canceled too late, so one more box and thats it…unless they really hit one out of the park for me in August, i wont resubscribe

    • Lol you are truly funny. But this is right on Point. I may give up on this boring subscription. They are slacking overy there hahahaha..

      I’m really considering going elsewhere. I already dropped Birchbox. BOXYCHARM IS MY FAVE..and Sephora always good products.

      • Aww man… I cancelled Birchbox bc I thought it was borring and I couldn’t use half of the products they sent. I really thought Glossybox was my new gem!! I got my 3 boxes and I’m pretty happy with the products. If I get a sc nail Polish or hair ties though, I’m gonna lose it. I’ll give it a go for a couple months and see how it goes. I have Ipsy which I love and I just signed up for Sephoria Play. I’m more interested in make up products, not shampoos and conditioners, wrinkle creams, and other hair products and such that I will never use.

    • Lol… At least the dead spider could be useful, as there are TONS of baby geckos around my house. They’re so cute, and they’re probably hungry!

      Maybe to go with two months’ worth of Sinful polish, we’ll get a nail file some GB employee picked up at a local business. We can all come on here and announce what business we got! “I got Jiffy Lube!” “I got Dr. Jones, OB/Gyn!” “I got Mattress City!”

      In a weird way I’m happy to see I wasn’t the only one who got ONE half-body Tan Towel!

    • And Jay for the comment win! Bahahaha a dead spider! lol lol (still snickering to myself) 😀

    • OMG “dead spider” best line ever! Truly laughing out loud.

    • Best comment EVER!

      But Jay, you forgot one thing though…

      A hotel shampoo that leaks all over the contents of the box and sticks the dead spider to the sinful colors 😀

      (hey, my trash can still smells like Jasmine. Who said you I didn’t get anything good from GB in July?!)

  14. Are the bonus boxes previous boxes?

    • Yup!

    • yeah most likely
